Engadgets title Google Glass is finally here, but it can be used for other things too!
article Engads, the world’s leading developer of augmented reality and virtual reality technology, has released the first preview of Google Glass.
In a blog post, the company said the software-powered glasses will be compatible with smartphones and tablets, allowing users to “see, hear and interact with the world around them in an entirely new way”.
Google Glass will be available to pre-order from April 21.
Google said that it is working with retailers to roll out the first of the glasses to customers, and said the company expects to start selling them in the second half of the year.
“We are also working with some partners to bring Glass to markets as early as this month, so stay tuned,” it said.
The Glass SDK will let developers create custom software to work with the glasses.
Engadges head of products, Eric Gagne, said that Glass was the culmination of a decade-long collaboration between Google and Engadge.
“For years, we’ve been working together on our vision to bring augmented reality to every corner of the world,” Gagne said in a statement.
“This partnership will allow us to take a leap forward by enabling augmented reality experiences in every single one of our customers’ products.”
“We believe in the power of augmented experiences to empower consumers to discover, discover, explore and discover,” he added.
The company also released a video that showed off the first-look footage of the device.
“Glass has been in development for several years now, and has undergone countless iteration and refinements,” Gage said.
“Its power is unparalleled.
It is the most powerful AR solution in the world today.
Its power is unmatched.”
Engadged added that its developers had been working with Google to refine Glass to deliver a more immersive experience.
“With the release of the Glass SDK, we have provided a more complete and complete set of APIs, making it easy for developers to build on top of this revolutionary new platform,” Gagen said.
Engads CEO John Schmitt said the first time Glass was used to study a new field of study was in 2012 when he and his colleagues took part in a seminar at Stanford.
“It was a very interesting experience,” he said.
